To be completely honest, we were very very disappointed with our NYE reservation. From the hostess at the front to the splitting of checks it was a rough night. The main way I could describe the night: it was blatantly obvious that you had a bunch of people there not wanting to work on NYE. I would even say it seemed like the “B” team was on.
Don’t get me wrong, my fiancée and I usually love eating here. We have dined or had happy hour here probably 7-10 times in the previous 2-3 years. This reservation was the poorest showing by far. The worst part is that my fiancée talked Cane Rosso up to the group dining with us as it was their first time. Very disappointing. One of the beers our group ordered was out, we didn’t receive one of our appetizers until we asked again, 2/7 meals were completely wrong when they arrived but were eaten due to the group being hungry, and our pizzas arrived cold and soggy.
Don’t believe me on the experience? Our server had to come and tell us that they had run out of tomatoes. We could not order bruschetta at an Italian restaurant because they ran out of tomatoes.
Hope y’all turn it around. Really saddened by our experience a couple nights ago

We came here on new year's with our dog and they were very accommodating. The outdoor seating had heaters so it's not cold for our dog! Went in the next day and they remembered us! Service was fast and sweet. They are very friendly and attentive. The food prices were a bit high but worth it. If you're looking for a dog friendly place, this Restaurant is great! I only wished they had a small dog menu.

Nice change of pace pizza..had the one with all the baconey items and the best little sweet hot peppers! Server was very busy, so drink refills were slow. Seats too hard and uncomfortable to linger for long..but the delicous banana pudding made it worth the wait.

The food was great and the service was excellent however; I’ve been coming here for 10 months and I have always been given my government/military discount. The manager this day refuse to give me my discount because I wasn’t in uniform and I have never have been in before to receive my discount. Very disappointing.

We absolutely love Cane Rosso! They have the best Sicilian style pizza that I've found in Austin so far and their pasta dishes are just as delicious. You can't go wrong with the eggplant fries, either. The only downfall that we've found so far are their desserts. Nearly everything is in a jar and with the exception of the mud pie, which has ice cream and chocolate sauce, it's all super dry. Cannoli's and mud pies are fantastic, though!

We went for Restaraunt Week. Had to ask for that menu. Waitress was nice but not super interested in service. It wasn't super crowded and service was on the slow side. This seems small but we asked for some extra salad dressing since the kale salad was a bit dry and they charged $1 extra for about 2 tablespoons of dressing. Good tasted fine. Good thing some $went as donation to food bank otherwise it
easy worth it.

Food was good quality. The Eggplant Parm Fries and Fried Mozzerelka were yummy. Found out that Neopolitsn-style isn’t my favorite. Super thin and floppy crust. But it tasted fine. Service wasn’t that great. We had a table of 5 and our food came out at staggered times and some items were forgotten. They also don’t serve ranch - because “it would mess up their certification” (for the Neopolitan-style I guess). Which is okay but came off as pretentious. But the place is fine. Cool interior.

The wait staff is always pleasant but service is always slow. It takes too long between the time you are seated and greeted. And too long to get your drinks after you place your order. The food is fantastic. I love this place.

Our waitress was superb! Really a good mix of being there when we needed her and leaving us alone, plus she was very kind to give me tastes of two wines and was clever and cool. I loved the taste of my pizza (margherita with eggplant added) but the texture of the pizza was strange- really soft and did not hold up. Also, my leftovers at home were too soggy and weird to eat- and I love pizza left over. The rose I had was good, and the ambience was nice. Just wouldn't return for that pizza, I have to say.

You might not expect a pizzeria to serve brunch. However, Cane Rosso has a brunch menu with creative options. Can't beat $1 mimosas! The food was delicious, the service was great and the atmosphere of the restaurant was upbeat.

Cane Rosso is a fun place for good NY style pizza. The fried artichokes are a great appetizer as are the mozerella. Best of all the place is filled with fun star wars decor. Fun place to take older kids for pizza.

The food is decent, management has a big problem figuring out how to target an audience due to the location. Management is completely missing. Rude hostess’, many people standing around doing nothing, best beer product hit and miss. Sorry, but we see a huge waste of money in what otherwise has potential. Simply poorly managed.

This was a family birthday gathering. We got a big corner booth which seated all of us comfortably, including space for multiple pizzas. We ordered and shared the pizzas and had several slices leftover. Service was prompt and attentive. The only challenge was getting glasses and plates from far side of table to server for pickup or water refill, but it didn’t interrupt the experience.

I went on a brunch date and everything about brunch was amazing. We ordered the chicken n waffles and the breakfast taco pizza. The chicken n waffles was out of this world (highly, highly recommend). The pizza was a lot of food (we ended up taking half of it home) and it tasted alright, not bad but not amazing. I think it's trying to be too much so the flavors are a little strange. The best thing of the whole brunch was the amazing drink deals... $1 mimosas and $5 carafes! I will definitely be going back for brunch and taking friends. The ambiance was nice and the service was good (our food came out really fast). Just remember, in Texas, they can't serve alcohol before noon without food on the table. For us, we were almost done eating by the time we got our drinks.

The dress code indicted casual elegant but forget the elegant when there are no table cloths on the table and the wait staff wear T shirts. The food is very good, the Pizzas look great although we didn't have any. It is a nice but very casual place, lends it's self more to Beer and Pizzas. There is ample seating and a nice patio with retractable plastic curtains for inclement weather. Great service.

The prix fixe for Valentine's day was pretty expensive. The quantity and quality of food was poor. My steak tasted ok, but I can make better at home. I'm not a chef and would pay $37.50 for something I've prepared. The service was ok, but I often felt like the waiter didn't really care about my questions or requests. He seemed like he was bored with us, and maybe had other places to be. The atmosphere felt like a boring Chili's.
